Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. If you want, you can simply list all the yellow food sitting in your fridge right now (butter, mustard). You could even stage a still life photo to upload and share. Anyway, my point is that posts like that are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then plug your name and link into Linky Tools.
Food on Fridays with Ann
Tea has been my companion for a good long while. My mother gave me the ritual of tea when I was a child, and I have carried it into adulthood.But suddenly I am looking at this drink I hold daily, this companion I have steeped from bags and loose leaves, in pots and cups. I am reading about the history of tea, its chemical properties, its rich cultural and literary connections. I am even writing poetry … Where will my new attention to tea take me? I suspect that doesn’t matter. For now, it is taking me right here, to my own cup and the stories it holds.SuddenlySolace is me, openingpages, white leaves that whisperthe secrets, the stories of tea.
What secrets and stories of tea can we share? What solace might we find?Won’t you talk tea with me (and LL)? If your thoughts are brief, leave them in the comments; if you have more to say about your history and experience with tea, write a post about it sometime this week, and next Food on Fridays can have a focus on tea.So, for this week and next, let’s join LL, however briefly, on her journey…her pilgrimage.Let’s join her for tea.
